One Life

There is no afterlife.
If there is,
You will never know it as ‘you’.
There is only this here and now.
Live all you can ‘live’ in this life.
Dream, achieve, be…
Cease to just exist.
One life
Is all we’ve ever had.

I don’t know if this is coincidence or because it is the end of the year and we all recollect what we have achieved in the past year, but even at the same time last year, I was reflecting on the same topic – one life. My story of the same title (you can read it here) was based on the same theme – how we have only one life, this life that we know, to do and be all we want. Who knows what the afterlife holds, if there be one?

I hope that your passing year has been good and fruitful and that you have lived each moment of it well. I hope your new year brings you better opportunities, double the happiness and triple the contentment. That you may look back, at the same time next year and say – this has been a good year.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
